It takes time to prepare the squid, but takes only a few minutes to cook. We like eating squids but only when squids look fresh, I will buy some and they often take me longer time to wash them thoroughly, inside and outside, removing all the membrance and dirties, until the squid’s body is very white and clean.
Stir-frying is a fast way of cooking squid and you’ll get a flavorful dish. Try this dish with pineapple, green ones preferred, and you will se how pineapples can go well with seafoods and reduce the fishiness smell of them.
Ingredients: (serves 2)
- 1 medium squid
- 1/2 medium pineapple, peeled, cut into chunks
- 1 small Thai chili or 1/2 large chili, crushed
- 1 tsp fish sauce
- 1/4 tsp ground pepper
- 1/2 tbs vegetable oil
- chopped corianders
- Wash the squid well until very white. Score slightly to create the pattern. Cut into chunks.
- Combine the squid pieces with chili, fish sauce and pepper.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok, add the squid and stir quickly until squid pieces start to curve. Remove from the pan.
- Add the pineapple chunks, stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, season with salt or cooking granules. Return the squid to the pan, continue cooking until the squid is just done.
- Remove from the heat. Toss in chopped corianders.
